  • Shooting 20 gauge wax slugs today

    25 yards. You can see one Keyhole. Not very accurate but it is amazing what a little wax can do to birdshot

          After my second divorce, my Explorer reeked of cheap thrills.

              Wax slugs are a good time. They leave the bore nice and shiny too.

                  A message to all, PLEASE either shoot them at one Calverton range session or mark them accordingly so you don't confuse them with other target loads. The worst thing that can happen is people bring them to a clays range and shoot them in the air. Everyone at the facility is in danger then.

                  Not picking on you Doubble Tap, just using the post to get the message out.

                        Also I feed them one at a time and give them a good shake to make sure the slug stays in the shell. I have had a couple slide out when turned upside down on a warm day because the wax softened. A barrel popping in your face will ruin your day. I like to under fill mine just a bit and hot glue over the top to top it off after they cool and that fixed the issue. They are a lot of fun and put a beating on anything they hit but like everything being responsible and knowledgeable when home brewing something will keep you (and possibly the people around you) on this side of the dirt a little longer.

                          You do it the correct way. You cut the tops so you can differentiate between wax slugs and target loads. Many people pry the crimp up pour the wax in and then push the crimp back down. That's when it gets sketchy.

                            Next time try finish nails and wax, interesting results they spread out wouldn't want to be on the other end of them.

                              I also feed them one at a time and put them in the freezer the day before I plan on using them
